A COVID-19 outbreak has been declared at Prince George's University Hospital of Northern BC Sunday.

Northern Health says nine patients and one staff member on the hospital's Primary Care Medical Unit have tested positive for the virus, and more testing is currently underway.

As a result, the hospital has restricted the unit to essential visitors only.

The condition of the infected people was not disclosed.

An outbreak at the same hospital last December through January left eight people dead, after 33 people tested positive.
